We are an establishment that serves high quality Spanish “tapas,” cocktails, and wine in a casual bar-like setting. Our restaurant takes bar food to a whole new level. At Bulla, guests are able to enjoy an array of small dishes, allowing every guest to appreciate each portion while interacting with each other. Our menu is designed to encourage sharing, savouring, socializing and having a good time. Come see for yourself what all the hype is about!

"Bulla had been for a long time on my "one of these days" list
But as Sunrise to Coral Gables is more than 1 or 2 traffic lights...........
The food was so freakin' incredible, I had to show conscious restraint from making a spectacle of myself licking each plate, serving dish,etc.
service was on point. ambiance was like a micro vacation !
Gosh Bulla2 would be amazing in Weston( wink -wink)(hint-hint). :)

Located at the famed Vagabond Hotel in the Miami Modern (MiMo) historical district, the Vagabond Restaurant & Bar is a "casual fine dining" concept catering to the "contemporary Vagabond," a modern-day adventurer with a penchant for global food, drink, and art. The restaurant will feature a global menu anchored in American, Latin and Asian influences. The menu is a coalescence of Executive Chef Alex Chang’s experiences over the last few years, having had stints at such renowned restaurants as Animal in Los Angeles, Pujol in Polanco, Mexico, Les Creations de Narisawa in Tokyo, and In De Wulf in Heuvelland, Belgium. Menu items feature many locally sourced ingredients and the style of service is high-energy, warm, and unpretentious. The Vagabond Restaurant & Bar is located at 7301 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL 33138.

"Outstanding addition to the attempts to revitalize MiMo. which is a fab. idea. South Beach overpriced,pretentious,yet oddly enough getting stale. Wynwood/MidTown oodles of great options,but the traffic/parking a nitemare.. Vagabond quality,food,vibe easily could go toe to toe with some of the heavyweights in those areas."

At Burger & Beer Joint, we’ve created a unique restaurant dining experience and zest’ed it with a bit of motor culture and Rock N’ Roll. From our massive, mouthwatering burgers with a gourmet twist, to our selection of 50 different bottles of beer, and our bucket-sized portions of delicious sides, fries, salads, and such

It’s more fun in the RA with lively music, a vibrant crowd, inventive cocktails and innovative Japanese fusion cuisine. Whatever you choose, it’s all served with a big side of Anything Can Happen. So bring your friends or make new ones. Either way, you’re in for a great time.

"RA is superior in the context of a chain restaurant. 80+% of the time it's a nice price:taste value. This particular visit. The food seemed dull. & the service was seemingly scattershot bordering on intermittent whim. Yes most likely we'll return.
But it will Strike 2 ,you're out ! if next trip falls flat again

 Oolite Restaurant & Bar
Oolite Restaurant & Bar
Oolite received 3.5 stars from the Miami Herald for Chef Partner Kris Wessel's original concept of Healthy Regional Fare inspired by the food culture and bounty of product in the region of Florida, the American South, the Caribbean and South America. Created as a healthy based cuisine, the entire menu is gluten free and protein specific. Oolite's kitchen technique is diverse using modern and time tested approaches to production including slow cooking, poaching, steaming, smoking, grilling, dehydrating and preserving. The seasonal menu allows a continual creative approach, always identifying with locals on favorite food use and recipes. Oolite is housed in a Frank Gehry building, just two steps off Lincoln Road, and adjacent to the Convention Center and the Fillmore Theater. Oolite's Craftsman interior design references mid century American with hand crafted wood tables, wainscoting, glass and pure Oolite limestone. The Artisanal wine and beer program was singled out for originality.

"chef Wessell is to food what Rory McIllroy is to golf . BRAVO !! was blown away at Red Light and knew he'd reach the highest stratosphere in his genre of food.
AND uber extra credit for the little section of the restaurant that offers indoor dining to those with dogs !! Brilliant !!!
We tried Shikany not too long ago, and though it's reputation was off the graph,Oolite annihilates it for both flavor and food-to-dollar value.

"Hoped for a new champion for sushi in Ft.Lauderdale. And considering nice intercostal setting. We went from expecting an Audi R8 to a Dodge Mom-van.
Not being snide for fun. Seriously we REALLY wanted this place to be a home run,but didn't manage to get into the batter's box.

Located in the heart of Miami’s emerging Midtown district, SUGARCANE raw bar grill is inspired by international influences and South American spirit. Three distinct kitchens: robata, hot and raw bar unite for a fresh take on tradition and a unique culmination of flavor. Embarking on quest for the simple pleasures of life: eating well, kicking back and celebrating with friends – the concept focuses on a ‘shared experience’ through its menu by Executive Chef & Partner Timon Balloo, featuring eclectic small plates, artisanal cocktails, an extensive rum selection and imported beers on tap. <br />

"Not our first trip and undoubtedly not our last. Food to $. Always a winner. This was a busy Saturday night,and only damper was that bar service seemed a tad overmatched,drinks came out at the pace of a wounded sloth"
